CHICAGO– A group of Morehouse College students surprised Oprah during the “Farewell Spectacular” on Tuesday. The men are amongst a group of 400 recipients of a Oprah Winfrey scholarship.
Paying it forward is one of the ways the men have chosen to thank Ms. Winfrey for their gift. Collectively, they have pledged over $300,000 to keep the scholarships going at Morehouse.
Some past recipients of the scholarship spoke on a video about what the degree received meant to them.
